The car was exactly what I reserved.Reserved for pick up at Noon. Showed up at 1. Waited 45 minutes for the car as it was "cleaned." The "clean" car had empty jool cases, food wrappers and food in the cup holders and between the seats. Also the car came with an empty tank. As in the gas light was on.

I needed to clean the windshield but there was no washing fluid in the tank. Next time I will check. I wasn’t told the office is closed on Saturday and since there were two notes in the window, one saying Open 9 -12 the other one Closed Saturday and Sunday I wasted half hour waiting

The rental car was clean. Mohammed was very helpful and explained the different coverages and how much each was, per day. He also put my concerns at ease and explained how they clean and disinfect the car during Covid-19 times. Thank you Mohammed.

Car rental was at 12 but place was CLOSED!!!Facility was closed when I arrivedI don’t understand why rental was at noon when facility was closed. I had to pay 200 extra to change locations. It was a huge disappointment and hassle. I’m extremely dissatisfied.

Customer ServiceDue to a delay in our luggage arriving, we couldn't pick up the reservation as scheduled. The next day we found out the car we booked was no longer available, but fortunately the local team was able to locate it at another location, and drove us there to get it.

Super quick pick up. Excellent customer service.
8.0 ExcellentJun 8 2018
Prompt free pickup. Easy paperwork and quick to get into the vehicle. The car was nice and clean. Ease of return. Got exactly the same car that was requested online.Some discrepancies with their billing system. On the computer it was $7-8 on top of final price. On their tablet, it was the exact price. When driving, can feel issues with gear change, acceleration/pickup etc with the car. This may be due to the wear and tear and different driving styles of previous renters. But never had any major problems or breakdown.

9.2 ExcellentJan 5 2017
Great Experience, Very Little SetbacksExtremely comfortable, great gas mileage, lots of nice features in the vehicle, drove very smooth.We received the vehicle with one of the tires having much less tire pressure and we had to go and fix the tire pressure ourselves. There was also old used bottles of water and mouthwash under the seats.
2.0 MediocreJan 4 2017
not getting a car at all when I showed up to the rental on the day of because THEY WERE CLOSED, and then not receiving any discount in having to book another car myself within the hour of this happening. Absolutely horrible experience. Customer service not helpful at all.
2.0 MediocreJan 1 2017
I wasn't even able to get the car since they were closed on the day of booking. I called 3 times and was told someone would call me back to help get another car rental at the same price but no one called me back. Totally messed up my plans for the holidays. Never renting from enterprise again.

Car rental insurance in Sunnyvale

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Sunnyvale car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Sunnyvale.

Top tips for renting a car in Sunnyvale

  • Sunnyvale, though it has much in the way of commuter public transportation, lacks public transportation within the city itself. Because of this, it is highly recommended that visitors rent a vehicle during their time in the city. This is especially the case if you plan on visiting some of the natural scenery outside of town, like Baylands Park, during your time in Sunnyvale.
  • The Bay Area has many airports to choose from. If you are arriving at Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport, the rental car counters are located in the Rental Car Center across from Terminal B. At San Francisco International Airport, the rental car desks are found at the Rental Car Center located on the airport’s AirTrain Blue Line. As for Oakland International Airport, shuttle buses are available at all terminals to take passengers to the designated Rental Center.
  • Due to its largely suburban nature, it is very normal to see plenty of pedestrians and bicyclists wantonly crossing roads and jaywalking in Sunnyvale. This is especially the case during the warmer parts of the year and during afternoon hours. Drivers should be cautious and on the lookout for potential jaywalkers and keep them in mind when navigating Sunnyvale.
  • Rush hour in Sunnyvale, while not as bad as neighboring San Francisco, is worth avoiding at its peak hours. The morning rush hour starts around 6:00 a.m. and goes until 9:00 a.m, while the afternoon rush hour goes from around 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. As for roads to avoid during rush hour in Sunnyvale, US-101 and I-280 are the two main culprits for rush hour traffic.
